Cejon scarf, Ross
Alfani petite shirtdress, Savers
One of my colleagues mentioned that I looked like a stewardess when I wore this. Hence the post title!
I picked up this dress on my last trip to Savers. I've been looking for a simply cut, washable, black everyday dress for a while. It's longer than would be deemed conventionally flattering, but I love the length - it feels so ladylike! And, there are pockets. *sigh of happiness*
I still find prints irresistible, but I am seeing how fun a solid dress can be. I'm looking forward to styling this dress in different ways, whether it's by wearing a bright belt or patterned sash, a necklace, or, if the weather gods smile upon us, with a heavier scarf on a chilly day.
Now on to the anticipation part of this post: While my birthday is in December, I bought my present early this year. Jason Mraz will be performing, and since I haven't attended a concert in years, I decided to splurge and buy myself a ticket. (Translation: on a teacher budget, splurge means buy a seat in the nosebleed section.)
When I lived in California, I got to see some of my favorite artists live - Vienna Teng, Tori Amos, and Duncan Sheik. I attended those concerts solo, so it doesn't bother me to go on my own to this one as well. I did think about buying my husband a ticket, but since his stock response about just about any band or musician is, "His/her/their songs all sound the same," I decided to be prudent and save my money. ; ) I think the best part of this gift is the anticipation that comes along with it: I've been listening to Mraz's music on YouTube, and contemplating what might make a good concert outfit.
What's the best or most memorable concert that you've attended?
